Albuquerque mayor: City mourning officer's death
ALBUQUERQUE - Albuquerque's mayor says he and other residents of the New Mexico city are mourning the death of Officer Daniel Webster.
The Albuquerque Police Department says Webster died early Thursday morning after being hospitalized after being shot during an Oct. 21 traffic stop.
Mayor Richard Berry said Webster served with distinction, honor and courage and that his sacrifice to keep his community safe will be remembered.
According to police, 34-year-old Davon Lymon shot at Webster multiple times after being pulled over for riding a motorcycle with a stolen license plate.
Lymon's lengthy criminal history and those of men charged in other recent high-profile cases in New Mexico have led to widespread criticism about the state's justice system from law enforcement officials.
Lymon is in federal custody on firearms charges in connection with the shooting.
